walk to La verna

Take a walk through the enchanted forest of La Verna and enjoy the magical views from the walls of the ancient monastery of San Francesco. You can even enjoy a coffee or simple lunch inside the working monastery and take a tour around the stunning buildings.

We encourage our guests to get up early one morning – some of the crew may join you too – and make the climb up the mountain just as the mist is rising in the valley. This is the best time to discover the forest, without any other visitors, as the trees whisper their secrets whilst you meander underneath their hundred year old branches.

If you time it right… you can make it up to La Verna, take a tour around the beautiful buildings, and make a pit stop on the way back down the mountain for well deserved lunch at Fabrizio, with a good appetite to boot!
